      Scott Hanselman is a great presenter, the perfect balance between calm/passion, funny/serious, and the ability to perceive things from a newbs point of view and the master's.  This is a really edifying presentation.  Big Smile


      Like  Jeroen Ritmeijer said above, great intro to OData.  Also, I like the MEF dating service analogy; I'll surely use it when conversing with others.

      What the cuss?  I am playing this on Silverligth **4**.  I put the video in full screen on my second monitor then proceed to work on my first montior and the video kicks out of full screen mode upon the first mouse-click on the app I want to work in.  I thought Silverlight 4 was supposed to support this scenario?  That's what ScottGu said during his DevConnections keynote.  If this requires a config change on the content side then please update your silverlight content to support this new functionality in SL4.

      Hi Scott,


      I am not sure what it is, but I have been wondering around the 2.x world and it kinda lost its magic for a while, bit more excitement and purpose now with 4.0, you gotta feel happy with what the ms teams have produced with this product, I must say good job all round. I am itching to make internet again. ps I enjoy the podcasts!
